|OPC UA for control system data collection and logging |
An all-in-one package for OPC communication expanded the data collection and logging functionality for Benninger Automation.
|A prototype implementation of deterministic OPC UA |
Leveraging IoT software, line operators can send pre-saved recipes with more than 20 parameters from a web interface to an IoT Gateway, which distributes the instructions to machines on the line.
|Gearing up for rapid application development using OPC UA |
Instead of developing an OPC UA Server as an all-proprietary solution, new development toolkit technology provides generic data exchange using encapsulated libraries which can be integrated into the application through a standard programming interface, reducing complexity and dramatically reducing time-to-market.
